Karpal: No one should pressure Abdullah to quit

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi should not be pressured to quit as Prime Minister despite his flaws, says DAP chairman Karpal Singh.

He said he preferred having Abdullah as the Prime Minister than his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as the country would experience another “Mahathir era” under Najib.

“Najib was once Dr Mahathir’s (former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s) blue-eyed boy. It is bound to happen.

“Umno should not write off Abdullah as he received the people’s majority.

“It is not fair to pressure him to step down. It is not in our culture to pressure anyone into submission,” he said yesterday.

Karpal Singh denied he wanted Abdullah to remain in power instead of Najib to make it easier for the Opposition to make their move, saying, “our chances are not slimmer under Najib.”
